For a few years now I have craved one of those fancy coffee makers that make individual cups of coffee.
But I always resisted buying one.
I'm the only coffee drinker at our house, and I like to live really simply in terms of gadgets and such. For me, less is way better!
This past weekend at the International New Age Trade Show in Denver, I got to stay at a fancy hotel courtesy of my publisher, Llewellyn.
I was excited about the puffy towels, bazillon soft pillows—you could even order a live goldfish for your room, in case you got lonely!
But the most impressive to me, was they had these special coffee makers, just like I'd always wanted. Pop in the tiny sealed canister, push a button and your brew is ready!
I popped, I pushed, I sipped.
And then the wake up call arrived... I liked my home coffee better. The simple boil water, run it through a recycled paper filter, direct into the cup coffee style.
Rich, deep, perfect. Ahhhhhh!
Sometimes we think we want something, only to find our we really don't. In coffee, and in many aspects of our lives.
The good thing is, the Universe is well aware of what we think we want, and what we actually need to accompany us on our path of highest possibility.
Take a look at this in your own life today.
P.S. Check out great books on spiritual intuition!
I had the great delight in studying the novel Field of Dreams in college.
The ideas of that book—trust the guidance you receive, act on it—have also been my compass during this journey.
Yesterday I spend most of the day packing and shipping an enormous amount of preorders for my new book, Becoming Your Best Self (later retitled The Intuitive Path). There are still many more to process when I get back from the International New Age Trade Show in Denver.
Yes, it's old fashioned. Yes, it's time consuming.
But it has given me great joy to do something personal at this time.
To sign and wrap and address and mail, putting a little of my energy into each one, so that when you get your copy, you will feel it too.

It's raining again. But the weekend was a glory of gentle sun.
We strolled the city of Independence (population 9000), where it is common to see giant farm tractors driving right down Main Street.
In the center of the town is a fountain, meant for dangling your fingers or even dipping a toe in.
And, for making wishes.
I did not have a wish to make that day...but from the corner of my eye I spotted an old, dented penny, laying on the pavement not far from the fountain.
I picked it up, closed my eyes, and wished that whoever's wish was on this penny... Whoever had a wish that needed to be granted... that this would come true.
Maybe it was yours? Maybe someone else's? In our connection as One, it doesn't really matter.
What affects one, affects All.

I teach about syncronicites, or strands as I call them.
They used to arrive to me in extremely direct ways—seeing 40 El Caminos in one day, for example. Walking directly into the arms of the man who was to become my partner at a concert of 30,000 people, as another.
Very direct, can't-miss-it stuff.
You go around thinking the Universe is random and then this stuff happens and you know it isn't so.
Recently, a tweet by Iyanla Vanzant came into my feed. I noticed it in the way that you do. No big deal.
The next day later, I I saw she was going to be a guest speaker at INATS, where I was also going to be. So, that was weird.
By this time, I'm paying a little bit of attention. Not a lot. It's just on my radar.
The next day, I head into the twn of Independence Oregon, population 9,000. I get a croissant and latte at the local bakery. And on an absolute whim, I step into the tiny used book store that's been there for decades.
I have not been in that store for five years. But today, it's Iike a tractor beam is pulling me in. I can't stop myself.
I head back to the Spirituality and Self Help section, and here's where it gets weird. There's absolutely no one in the store, except in that particular aisle there's a woman standing exactly where I want to look.
It's very awkward!
I saw something like "I'm not trying to crowd you, I just like this section too".
And she says nothing.
She doesn't respond or move or nod or shrug.
Almost like—almost like she's not a human, or she's not really there.
Because this woman is standing where I want to stand, I have to stand in front of a different section. I look up, and I see a book and I pull the book off the shelf.
And of course this book is by Iyanla Vanzant.
I start laughing. I have no idea what any of it means, and it's not important.
I realize simply that I am in the midst of a strand, and I am being guided.
I buy the book.
I head outside into the sun and open the book to a random page, where I read "The only requirement for you to become a living example of faith is to work on yourself."
Which is the answer to the question I have been asking the Divine all week.
